“Fantastic fishing location - North & South Jetties at Sebastian Inlet”

Sebastian Inlet State Recreation Area
Ranked #2 of 110 things to do in Melbourne
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I spent a week fishing this location and was rewarded on my last day with 17 pound 32 inch Black Drum, a Sheepshead and lots of 'blues'. The weather held for most of the week with some rain and alot of wind at the end. This does not really affect the fishing because there are two fishing jetties (North side and South side). The South jetty has seen a lot of Flounder caught recently. I guess because of the way the current swings around the end of the jetty. Lots of parking as well as a bait & tackle shop. There is a brand new restaurant currently under construction - should be open soon. Really great location for fishing. Bring heavy tackle - there are some BIG fish here.

We recently visited this park with some friends who enjoy outdoor activities. The day was beautiful and we enjoyed walking about the park, watching the fishermen reel in their catches, and observing the sea birds. Although we were there on a Sunday, the park was not crowded and we enjoyed walking along the trails and fishing docks. Lovely, peaceful place and well worth a visit.

It's a perfect place for families to spend the day. Be wary of school holidays and weekends through the warm season, you'll find that it's packed!

I don't get the raves about how beautiful this place is. I think the Canaveral National Seashore is much prettier, plus the wildlife park and Kennedy Space Center are nearby.

The vistas are superb. You can enjoy the huge catches with the locals who are so pleasant and knowledgable. Great for photos.
The museum provides excellent brochures and "recipes" with an excellent staff.
Just go there, a very "old time" Florida experience.
